Hot Shot (Unicron Trilogy)
|This page needs some cleaning up to meet Loathsome Characters Wiki's quality standards.|
The following reason has been specified: Very short page, and needs much more detail.
Hot Shot (Japanese: Hot Rod (Armada/Micron Legend), Hot Shot (Energon/Superlink), and Exillion (Cybertron/Galaxy Force) ホットロッド Hotto Roddo, ホットショット Hotto Shotto, エクシリオン Ekushirion) is a young Autobot who works for Optimus Prime. He is one of the main protagonists of the Unicron Trilogy of Transformers.
Why He Sucks
- Hot Shot is extremely immature (In Armada and Cybertron).
- His maturity makes no sense at all. He went from a childish in Armada being to a serious character in Energon, and got slenderized to be childish again in Cybertron.
- Speaking of Transformers Energon, his personality became incredibly bland, boring, and dull.
- Hot Shot from the Unicron Trilogy can easily be compared to Bumblebee from the Michael Bay Penology. Both are yellow (Until Hot Shot turned blue in Cybertron), both are robots, both are childish, both transform into sports cars, both tend to be the kid-appeal characters of their respective continuities, and both of them are from continuities that have many installments (A trilogy of cartoons and a pentalogy of films respectively). The only difference is that Hot Shot is overly talkative (Especially in Armada and Cybertron), and Bumblebee barely speaks (His actual voice can really only be heard in Transformers 2007 and Transformers 5: The Last Knight).
- The reason why Hot Shot was blue is because originally, in Galaxy Force (Japanese dub of Cybertron), it was originally a complete reboot and Exillion being a completely separate character.
- However, they later merged the past two shows, thus causing confusion in the US, thus explaining Hot Shot being childish again in Cybertron.
- At least his design in vehicle and robot modes are passable.
- he wasn't really a whiny guy.
- He did spawn a lot of good toys based on himself.
- He's not as bad as Ironhide from Energon.
- Hot Shot was originally going to be called "Bumblebee", but Hasbro didn't have the rights during 2002 - 2005.
- He was voiced by Brent Miller in Armada and Energon, who would later be the voice of Zane from "Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu". Ironically, he would later be voiced by Kirby Morrow in Cybertron, who also voiced Cole.
